    2. Quality Metrics
    3. Process Improvement Plan
    4. Quality Improvement Plan
    CORRECT: C. A is incorrect as it relates to performing measurements to present performance. B is incorrect as it relates to the specific measurements that shall be performed on the project work in order to measure quality. C is correct because process analysis
  2. Root Cause Analysis relates to:

    2. Quality Audits

    4. Histogram
    CORRECT: D. Note that Pareto diagram is not the best tool for root-cause analysis. It mainly helps the project management team to quantify and categories the defects/issues according to sources (e.g. engineering defects, acoustic defects, setup problems, etc)
  5. A planning phase for an engineering component generated 80 engineering drawings. The QA team randomly selected 8 drawings for inspection. This exercise can BEST be described as example of:
    1. Inspection
    2. Statistical Sampling
    3. Flowcharting
    4. Control Charting
    CORRECT: B. "Inspection” is what the team is doing on individual drawings; however, the entire exercise of random selection and inspecting a work product is known as “Statistical Sampling”

Testimonials

  • I took the boot camp last Monday thru Thursday and I passed my PMP, on my first attempt, on Friday afternoon.

    Lorna Lavelle, PMP
  • I took my bootcamp last week and passed the next day. My instructor was easily one of the best instructors I've ever had.

    Timothy Hopkins, PMP
  • I leveraged the course as somewhat of a capstone to my preparation period. I took the exam the very next day after the boot camp ended, and passed.
